The A330 can operate to ORD. That said, I see a top-up order at LH going to LX, to replace both the A343s and B77Ws (the B77Ws would move to LH to retire the B744s). That said, there is a question of what replaces the A343s at Edelweiss. You're right. But as we know, their A330-300 are still quite ...Jump to post
There are many A332s flying around the globe. Some of those will be replaced by A338, I would think.Jump to post
Just to give a little update on this. Both flights where indeed operated by HiFly's CS-TQP. Great cabin crew (mixed HiFly/Air Greenland), generous seat pitch, flawless operation (the departure out of SFJ was a little late but this is normal because they have to wait for all the Dash-8's with connec...Jump to post
Onto newly built -900s AND available as a retrofit? Probably no point in it. A winglet's performance is dependent on the spanwise lift distribution of the wing inboard it. Change one without changing the other and your likely to have subpar performance. Sharklets were retrofitted onto A320s, B767s ...Jump to post
Are the recently announced improvements to the -900 (aero, wing twist, winglets etc.) expected to be applied to the -1000, improving it further, or are they already on the -1000? These are actually from the 1000 and headed on to the 900.... The winglet is new though and will go first on the -900. O...Jump to post

Could be... Normally, the tail would at this stage already have TAP's colours.Jump to post
When are TAP due to get their first neos?Jump to post

If TAP needs range sometime in the future, they could add a few A330-800. Problem is it looks more and more like Airbus will not make them. This whole topic seems pointless. TAP is a survivor - one of the few mid-size European carriers from the 1950s to still be around. For their size and network, ...Jump to post
If TAP needs range sometime in the future, they could add a few A330-800. As far as I am aware, all TAP routes are presently flown by either A343 or A332, and more recently, by the A333 they recently took over from Singapore Airlines. Whether the longer routes had weight penalties I don't know, but...Jump to post
When are further deliveries to LX going to happen?Jump to post
This truly means the end of an era. I still remember all the discussions about the lack of PTV onboard IB and LH longhaul planes :lol: Also, it is sad to see another airline abandoning the 343 but the future is waiting. Seeing how few 343s are only left, I'm super happy that my upcoming TAP flight ...Jump to post
Can someone briefly explain the difference between an Avro RJ and a BAe-146? Basically the same aircraft, but the newer models are called Avro RJ85, 100, etc, according to the length/capacity. A bit like the DC9s, which later became the MD80s, sometimes also called the DC9-80, 81, etc. (after the m...Jump to post
They need to improve their service they are horrible . flew with them from lisbon to vienna they offered a snack service but we had to line all the way to the back to actually get it flight attendants won't service they are extremely rude with a lot of attitude You were clearly unlucky.

But in seriousness, I think their strategy of a "low cost full service carrier" is a good one and so far seems to be doing good for them. Their widebody fleet needs urgent replacing, which they're doing, and the premium cabins on their shorthaul also need a refurb (seriously, their E190s ...Jump to post
The pilot did report to ATC "Mayday, engine failure. We are going to land on the beach". ATC asked: "what beach are you going to land on?" to which the pilot replied: "Cova do Vapor". Another aircraft in the vicinity was asked to check it out. They reported that people ...Jump to post

I'm pretty damn sure anyone in the audience listening to a musician cannot tell the sound quality between a violin that costs tens of thousands of dollars from one that costs a few thousand dollars.

Edelweiss is fully owned by Swiss, who in their turn belong to the Deutsche Lufthansa AG, which is the mothership of LH,OS,SN, 4U, EW etc. It's soooooo simple......;) ;) More seriously, basically Swiss is codesharing on the Edelweiss flights, nothing more nothing less.

A 300 year old Stradivarius/Amati/Guarneri costs more than a airworthy used B777 assuming someone ready to sell one
Absolutely. And one wouldn't want an instrument like that being handled like "luggage".

There is something wrong here: Both Swiss and Baltic have been operating their CS100 and CS300 for some time by now. Have they been hiding problems with the engines? I've been following LX CS100 operations on a daily basis and the reliability, as well as the altitude they've been cruising at are bey...Jump to post
This is the NEO all over again. Hope it doesn't have to fly below 300 for the engines to work. Such a shame. I really love this plane and was hoping for its deliveries to ramp up quickly. Not soon apparently. Yesterday, the delivery flight of LX#8 cruised at FL410. Daily scheduled LX flights cruise...Jump to post
Unless BBD can pick up their delivery pace I doubt we'll see any more orders. There is clearly a major production delay issue. Why would anybody order an aircraft that looks likely to be significantly delayed? As has already been much discussed in this thread, the problem is not with BBD. It's Prat...Jump to post

With 8/10 the CS100 fleet is near to be complete.
why did HB-IJX leave already. It was by far not the oldest 320 in the fleet. Does the (technical) configuration have any differences as this is an ex LTU-bird whereas the other 320's are all SR or LX newbuilds? You're right. She is only 15 years old. Perhaps the lease expired, or expensive maintena...Jump to post
